Pirelli has confirmed that it will take its softest Formula 1 tire compounds to the Red Bull Ring for the Austrian Grand Prix on July 9.

Since 2016, Pirelli has elected three compounds for each grand prix to give teams variation in strategy, with the softer tires being saved for tracks with lower levels of degradation.

After confirming its picks for Canada and Azerbaijan in March, Pirelli has now confirmed the compounds it will take to the first race back in western Europe following the two flyaways.

The ultra-soft, super-soft and soft tires will be available for teams to use in Austria. All drivers are required to use at least one set of either the super-soft or soft tires during the race, and must complete Q3 on the ultra-soft compound.
